Exactly, we seem to usually go in the other direction of most pre winter forecasts. Wasn’t it last season a lot of people called for an historic winter? You guys stick to the pro stuff I’ll weenie mys

It's going to be interesting to see how this Nina plays out because we honestly haven't seen one like this year in a while or maybe forever. While, the cool anomalies along the equator we have seen, t

This is an important post as it heralds the unofficial start of PhillyWx weenie winter.  When Heisi comes out of summer hiding, sound the trumpets, bookmark your favorite winter pages, apologize in ad

Somehow, someone, somewhere, probably on Ragebook or Iamatwit(ter), will still say this is all wrong and there will be a Modoki nino this season.

That a challenge?? 

 

Hold my 🍻!!

Yay!  Always good to see the return of the winter thread.  Last winter's pattern thread was started in April 2019 (!?!), the year before was started in June, and the year before that the discussion was started 8/1/17.  What was the hold up?

Nothing as far as I know.  Maybe the heat was getting to everyone?

The Indian Ocean needs to cool. Once that happens,  I'll  start worrying about the  ENSO state.

If la nina stays weak, thats good, but I don't like all the above normal water stacked up in phases 2-6. Regardless, we can sit here and regurgitate all these analogs and what not and what winter should do. Reality though, you don't know till December once you see how the winter tropical forcing pattern evolves and pv strength

13/14 had nothing special going for it at the end of August,  2013, and we know  how that turned out. 14/15 had nothing special  going for it thru 2/13/15, and we know  how that turned out. Just too early to be confident imho, but admittedly there's nothing  to get excited about at this point either. Plus, I've  vastly increased my  odds of snow having bought a home in Hanover, PA. I'll  miss the coastals that'll  hit your  area on east, but will hopefully get more snow with the borderline events.

Sheets of sleet would have worked great in 2007-8.  I had to laugh.  Anyway ninas usually do have more mixed bag events than ninos.

Might as well beat everyone to it, winter cancelled 

March will rock.

The only thing I will say if there is pessimism about this winter whether it is warranted or not is a different frame of mind than the unbridled optimism of the last couple of winters.  There is only upside potential.

Just please don’t tell us you will be looking for Florida vacation spots in winter. I truly believe that was the number 1 reason over tropical forcing and the pv that the last 2 winters failed
